Hunger is a threat to our nation’s public health; hunger also threatens the physical and cognitive development of children in our community, and their potential educational attainment. To combat the challenge of childhood food insecurity, Three Square provides nutrition assistance for children through both early childhood and school-aged children programs.

School-age children’s programs:
Nearly 58% of children in the Clark County School District are enrolled in Free or Reduced Lunch at their respective school. Parents are encouraged to complete an application for Free or Reduced Lunch at their child’s school at the beginning of the school year, or whenever their employment situation changes and money for food runs tight. School breakfast and lunch programs offer healthy meals to children so that they are ready to learn and play.

Three Square also provides nutritional support to schools and after-school programs:

Hunger Facts

Imagine your child’s classroom: thirty children, and fifteen of them are hungry.

58% of children in the Clark County School District are enrolled in free and reduced-price meal programs based on their family income. That’s more than half of the kids facing hunger at home and coming to school unprepared to learn.
